The Alliance Of Small Island States: Intellectual Property, Cultural Heritage, And Climate Change, Matthew Rimmer Apr 2018

The Alliance Of Small Island States: Intellectual Property, Cultural Heritage, And Climate Change, Matthew Rimmer

Matthew Rimmer

This article will consider the role of AOSIS in debates over intellectual property, the environment, and climate change. It will consider questions of technology transfer, climate justice, and intergenerational equity. This article will conclude that there is a need for AOSIS to bolster its position on intellectual property, technology transfer, access to genetic resources, and Indigenous Knowledge. Moreover, the group could seek to benefit from the development of international networks – such as the Technology Mechanism established under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change 1992, and the Global Indigenous Network announced by Australia at the Rio 20 discussions on ...


The Maker Movement: Copyright Law, Remix Culture, And 3d Printing, Matthew Rimmer Dec 2017

The Maker Movement: Copyright Law, Remix Culture, And 3d Printing, Matthew Rimmer

Matthew Rimmer

3D printing is a process of making physical objects from three-dimensional digital models. 3D printing is a form of additive manufacturing – rather than a traditional form of subtractive manufacturing. 3D printing is a disruptive technology, which promises to transform art and design, science and manufacturing, and the digital economy.

The Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science, the Hon. Christopher Pyne, has highlighted the key role of 3D printing for manufacturing and material science in Australia: ‘Manufacturing remains a key driver in our economy, but as the industrial landscape changes, the sector needs to transition to more innovative and economically viable ...

Intergenerational Progress, Brett Frischmann, Mark P. Mckenna Sep 2017

Intergenerational Progress, Brett Frischmann, Mark P. Mckenna

Brett Frischmann

This Essay prepared for the Wisconsin Law Review’s symposium on Intergenerational Equity lays the groundwork for a broader understanding of the goals of IP law in the United States by arguing that there is room for a normative commitment to intergenerational justice. First, we argue that the normative basis for IP laws need not be utilitarianism. The Constitution does not require that we conceive of IP in utilitarian terms or that we aim only to promote efficiency or maximize value. To the contrary, the IP Clause leaves open a number of ways to conceive of Progress; courts’ and scholars ...

Rapid Litigation Management Ltd. V. Cellzdirect, Inc.: Limiting The Use Of Subject Matter As A Functional Barrier To Patent Eligibility In The Biotechnology Industry, Casey M. Olesen Sep 2017

Rapid Litigation Management Ltd. V. Cellzdirect, Inc.: Limiting The Use Of Subject Matter As A Functional Barrier To Patent Eligibility In The Biotechnology Industry, Casey M. Olesen

Maine Law Review

In recent years, the biotechnology industry has surpassed a market worth of $200 billion dollars, with over 1.4 million jobs dependent on that market. However, the biotechnology industry is also uniquely dependent on the patent system to protect the huge investments of time and money required to bring new research to the market. Increasingly, courts have improperly used the Patent Act's Section 101 subject matter eligibility requirement as a functional barrier for new biotechnological patents, creating substantial uncertainty in the validity of many patents. In particular, the courts have utilized judicially created exceptions to allowable subject matter--laws of ...

The United States Film, Music And Pharmaceutical Industries’ Battle For International Copyright And Patent Protection And Enforcement, Fe Emmanuelle (Noelle) Panlilio

Owen Dixon Society eJournal

There is tension in international intellectual property policy between less protection and more protection. The United States, a champion of expansion, plays a major role. It has contributed in multiple law-making forums. This article outlines the progress that the United States has made to further its interests in the global intellectual property law arena, both in law-making and in enforcement. It also discusses the interplay between these developments and the role of large corporations in private industry with a strong interest in intellectual property. It focuses on the film, music and pharmaceutical industries and specifically on copyright and patent laws ...


Cannabis Trademarks: A State Registration Consortium Solution, Russell W. Jacobs Sep 2017

Cannabis Trademarks: A State Registration Consortium Solution, Russell W. Jacobs

Washington and Lee Law Review Online

This article proposes a solution to a problem in the cannabis industry resulting from the unavailability of federal trademark registration for that sector. The author offers modest changes to the existing state trademark registration systems to make up for the gaps at the federal level. The proposed reforms would strengthen the trademark framework by conferring on cannabis trademark registrations presumptions of ownership, exclusive rights, and validity beyond the presumption of registration currently afforded under state laws. To extend protection throughout the geographic breadth of the cannabis marketplace, the states with legalized recreational cannabis would offer reciprocal recognition of state cannabis ...

Earlier this year, SPARC launched Connect OER—a platform to share and discover information about Open Educational Resources (OER) activities at campuses across North America. Through Connect OER, academic libraries create and manage profiles about their institution’s efforts on OER, producing valuable data that we use to populate a searchable directory and produce an annual report.

As the first Connect OER Annual Report, this document summarizes insights from the Connect OER pilot, which ran from May - July 2017. The data encompass 65 SPARC member libraries spanning 31 U.S. states and five Canadian provinces who participated in the pilot ...

A Splendid Torch: Learning And Teaching In Today’S Academic Libraries, Jodi Reeves Eyre, John C. Maclachlan, Christa Williford Sep 2017

A Splendid Torch: Learning And Teaching In Today’S Academic Libraries, Jodi Reeves Eyre, John C. Maclachlan, Christa Williford

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

In the winter of 2015, a handful of current and former CLIR postdoctoral fellows gathered at a small restaurant in Washington, D.C., to celebrate publication of The Process of Discovery: The CLIR Postdoctoral Fellowship Program and the Future of the Academy. In typical CLIR fellowship alumni fashion, it took about an hour of relaxation before we began to look at one another and ask, “Now what?” Over fried pickles, barbecue brisket, and vegan spare ribs, we decided to recreate the Collaborative Writing Group (CWG) experience that fostered the collection of essays about what we had learned from our work ...


Section 108 Of Title 17: A Discussion Document Of The Register Of Copyrights, Chris Weston, Aurelia J. Schultz, Emily M. Lanza, Michelle Choe, Karyn Temple Claggett Sep 2017

Section 108 Of Title 17: A Discussion Document Of The Register Of Copyrights, Chris Weston, Aurelia J. Schultz, Emily M. Lanza, Michelle Choe, Karyn Temple Claggett

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

The objective of the discussion document is: to review the issues raised over the past decade of revision work; to outline the Office’s current views and proposals on the various revision issues; and to present and explain model statutory language for a new section 108. Although the model statutory language should not be seen as the Office’s final view on section 108, the Office believes that it is important to provide a more concrete framework for further discussion. Additionally, the Discussion Document includes copious illustrative examples of how the Office envisions the proposals might work in practice.
